    It might just be the original back plate causing the grinding. Did you have the lil cut or bent back?

    Had it cut. Donít think itís that as I would hear it more when driving, just seems to do it When I brake

    So car went into garage and as expected the noise stopped as I drove to garage . Anyway been ok since.

    In other news car got remapped today. Sean from SM Tuning came to my house.

    Took the ECU out and last mapper had bodged it and stuck gaffa tape round the ECU



    He said I was very luck no moisture had got in as that could of f**ked it.

    Anyway he had to put back to standard map and then start fresh. All done and it drives so much better; engine is much quieter, definite power increase and pulls really well through all the gears.

    Very happy

    That’s a proper bodge there.... did I do it??

    Any smoke after your remap and how much does he charge? I’m changing my car so will need a remap on my new one.

    Haha.

    I had quite a bit of smoke before then since I unplugged a sensor that was causing issues due to the dodgy map the smoke cleared.

    After this map when I floored it there was a bit of smoke but think that was just clearing some crap out again. Going on a long run on Friday so will check smoke then.

    He charged me £295. Obviously need to give mine some time yet as was only done today but knows what he is doing and just look at his reviews. All good

    What you getting next?

    I thought about it but I’ve been there and done it so I’d prefer a change. Might regret it though!

    Quick update on the remap.

    Itís superb! Power much improved and car is so much smoother now.

    Slight improvement on MPG as well.
